Although the pair have claimed to be just friends, they were seen holding hands throughout the meal. Stewart's boyfriend of four years, actor Michael Arangano, was nowhere to be seen as she chatted quietly with Pattinson. After finishing the dinner at 11 p.m., the pair were escorted back to their West Hollywood hotel.
And while Stewart, 19, stayed in, Pattinson left his crush and headed to a late-night fete at Guy's. "Robert is obsessed with Kristen and has been for a while. He likes that she's a cool, down-to-earth girl. Kristen never saw Rob as anything but a friend, but that seems to be changing," the New York Daily News quoted an insider as saying of the stars'' budding relationship.
